Mythological Creature: Bisimbi Bi Masa

Since I started in Africa, I figure I may as well stick with their stories for the week. From Central Africa, we have this lovely lady. The Bisimbi Bi Masa are water nymphs of the Congo. Their homes can be found at the mouths of rivers and it is said they can only be seen at dawn. As dangerous as they are attractive, the Bisimbi can cause humans to develop a deadly skin disease which can only be cured by the sound of their voices. Very few people are willing to risk visiting the places where these nymphs are said to live.
